The Life of Wiclif. M.A.
Sketch of the Reformation in England. By the Rev. I. G. Blunt.
We have classed these two works under the tame head, only because of the natural connexion of their subject matter. The first is Number I. of a new series of periodical volumes, entitled •'The Theological Library;" the second is Number XXVI. of "The Family Library." Mr. Slant's is an excellent book, it contains, skilfully condensed into a moderate compass, all the information which it is requisite, or almost desirable, for any but a Churchman to have, respecting the most extraordinary 3nd important event in the history of his own or any other c*ountry under Heaven. Whether regarded in a political or a religions view, we think the Protestant Reformation justly entitled to be so considered. Now that religions order his been long established, when a pure faith has come forth from the refitter's tire, and superstition and persecution for conscience sake, are matters of history rather than of experience, we are no longer fair judges of the sentiments and conduct of the men who lived upon the verge of the Reformation. We readily perceive and acknowledge that it was a high and holy enterprise, but we need scarcely remark, that it was also a bold and imminently haxardons one. ** In the age of Wiclif," says Mr. Le Baa, 44 the sentiments of reverence for the papacy had, indeed, from various causes, been somewhat rudely shaken in this country: but still tbere were but faint symptoms of any serious defection from the majesty of Romish tradittun, and little promise of the reinstatement of the heavenly witnesses in their original honour. The biblical method of instruction was still trampled under foot by the fastidious pride of the scholastic discipline, and by the overbearing authority of irrefragable and trraphic doctors. And yet, in this state of the public mind it was that Wiclif had the fortitude and the independence to associate the study of the Scriptures with the keenest pursuit of the scholastic metaphysics; and not only so, but to assign to them the full supremacy which belongs to them, as disclosing to us < the way, the truth, and the life.*"
To this just and accurate statement of the case, a statement, too, which applies with little less force to Luther, and Zningle, and the confessors and martyrs of our own Reformation in England, than to Wiclif, we cannot add a more suitable appendix than the concluding paragraph of Mr. Slant's sketch of this great religious revolution. "To the Reformation we owe it, that a knowledge of religion has kept pace in the country with other knowledge; and that, in the general advance of science, ami the general appetite for inquiry, this paramount principle of all Ij I- been placed in a position to require nothing but a fair field and no favour, In order to assert its just pretensions. We are here embarrassed by no dogmas of corrupt and unenlightened times, still riveted upon our reluctant acceptance by an idea Feb.—vor. xxxvi. NO. cxxxiv.
of Papal or synodical infallibility; but we stand with the Bible iu our hands, prepared to abide by the doctrines we can discover in it, because furnished with evidences for its truth, (thanks to the Reformation for this also!) which appeal to the understanding, and to the understanding only; so that no man competently acquainted with them ueed shrink from the encounter of the infidel, or feel for a moment that his faith is put to shame by his philosophy. Infidelity there may be in the country, for there will ever be men who will not trouble themselves to examine the grounds of their religion, and men who wilt not dure to do it: but bow far more intense would it have been, and more dangerous, had the spirit of the times been, in other respects, what it is, and the Reformation yet to come; religion yet to be exonerated of weights which sunk it heretofore in this country, and still sink it iu countries around us; inquiry to be resisted in an age of curiosity; opinions to be bolstered up (for they may not be retracted) in an age of incredulity; and pageant* to be addressed to the senses in an a»e which, at least, calls itself profound. As it is, we have nothing to conceal, nothing to evade, nothing to impose. The reasonableness as well as righteousness of our reformed faith recommends it; and whatever may be the shocks it may have to sustain from scoffs, and doubts, and clamour, and licentiousness, and seditious tongues, and an abused press, it will itself, we doubt not, prevail against them all, and save, too, as we trust, the nation which has cherished it, from the terrible evils, both moral, social, and political, that come of a heart of unbelief."
It was upon this great question that the wonderful, the gigantic influence of the press was first made known. In the revival of the Gospel, the art of printing served, in a measure, the same end as the miraculous gift of tongues at its original publication. It was a new and most important principle introduced into the social system, and which has now for upwards of three centnrtes been gradually acquiring greater and greater strength. But we must make an end of our homily, lest much speaking minister not to edification. We like both the books under review well. •■ The Life of Wiclif* is diligently and ably written; " The Sketch of the Reformation" is a sound and earnest book, and futlof matter. From the next number of " The Theological Library," we expect much. We have heard such admirable sermons from the Author (Dr. Shuttle worth) in sweet St. Mary's, when we dwelt upon the pleasant banks of Isis, that we are sure beforehand any thing from bis pen will be truly good.
Reflections on the ancient Nations of Africa. Vol. II.—Egyptians.
Althongh containing the result of much research upon the state of ancient Egypt in general, the greater part of this valuable work is devoted to a consideration of the history, dominion, and fall of that Titan among cities, and type of magnificence and mystery, the still great and illustrious Thebes. A very acute and ingenious essay upon the extent to which monuments may be admitted as historical evidence, and an examination of the plan followed by ChampolHon in deciphering the Phonetic hieroglyphics, are Introductory of a series of reflections upon almost every subject connected with the existence of that flourishing empire, which formerly extended its power from the banks of the Kile to those of the Euphrates, and perhaps to the Indus itself. These reflections are in their nature Bo various, and involve so much deep investigation, that it is impossible, within the Hunts to which we are confined, to do more than mention the deductions drawn from a few among the number. M. Heeren considers the priest and warrior castes of the old Egyptians to have sprung from a Nubian origin, and strengthens bis theory by a comparison of (he antiquities ami inscriptions at Meroe with those of the Thebaid, as well as by the circumstance, that the Negro character of countenance is nowhere perceptible among the victorious bands, sculptured upon the palaces and tombs within that district. He thinks the region known by the name of Lower Egypt to have been peopled long after the foundation of Thebes, and to have continued for a very considerable period in subjection to it, contrary to the authority of Maueibo. He also supposes the pyramids of Memphis to have been erected under the dynasty of the Hyksos or Nomad king?. He has described at great length the monuments of Thebes, with the multitudinous bas reliefs upon the walls of the stupendous buildings at Carnac and Luxor, and conjectures the Osyrnandyas of Diodoras to be the same person as the great Rameses or Sesostris, while he believes the famous naval engagement sculptured at Medinet Abou, a representation of his conquests upon the shores of the Indian Sea. The whole of this part of the volume, together with a discussion relative to the importation of certain religious rites from Meroe into the Thebaid, and the connexion of this circumstance with a well known passage in the first book of Homer, are fully deserving the attention of the scholar and antiquary. We next arrive at the chapter of commerce and manufactures. Many particulars upon these points have been taken from the monuments at Eilethyia, and Herodotus is copiously quoted wherever his authority is admissible. A consideration of the causes which led to the decline of the power of the Pharaohs forms the subject of the fifth chapter: nor is the Appendix, in which several curious papers are inserted, unworthy the rest of the volume. Five well-executed maps also give additional value to its contents. Egypt, concerning which every day, in this era of general research, reveals some new and interesting particular, must become a subject of still greater attention by the publication or M. Heeren's reflections. The literature of this country has received a valuable addition by his labours, and the translator is deserving of high praise for the manner in which he has introduced his Author to the English reader. The whole work, both from the matter it contains, and the elegance of its typography, is a credit to the university and pre** from which it has issued.
Britain's Historical Drama. By J. F. Pennie.
We think Mr. Pennie is quite unconscious in what bis own strength consists. He proceeds too mnch upon the "aut Csesar aut nihil" principle, and by aiming only at the highest departments of literature, fails of obtaining that applause which
less ambitious aspirations might ensure for his efforts. Of this his lately published tragedies are » sufficient instance. Smoothness of versification, considerable historical knowledge, and bursts of feeling and pathos, we frequently meet with ; bnt, upon the whole, we find but little of that deep insight into the human heart, and that masterly delineation of passion, in its various shades and modifications, which alone could enable ns to pronounce the title of dramatic poet justly acquired. We think, too, he has been unfortunate in the subjects he has selected. Tin- day is gone by, when the desire of being considered the descendants of an illustrious ancestry formed a general and national mania. For our own parts, we care not the value of a brass celt, and we believe the greater part of the public are affected by the same indifference, whether our forefathers were indeed the "bony, gannt, and blue dyed savages" Mr. Pennie's Ciesar has designated them, or whether the high-flown descriptions of the poets and historians of the Elizabethan age on this head are true to the letter. AH the pains, therefore, which the Author of the National Dramas has tiken to cast a splendour and pomp of circumstance round the earlier epochs of our history, appear to us thrown away. We object also lo those perpetual declamations about the future greatness of Britain, in which his characters are so fond of indulging. These compliments to our ownselves, which it Is so easy to force the ideal past to pay us, partake too much of the character of those melodramatic traps for applause, in the shape of eulogies upon British magnanimity, honour, faith, and so forth, which are as sure as any cause can be of its effect, of producing thunders of acclamation from the patriots in the upper galleries. Thus much for Mr. Penoie*s units. We are happy to add, that there are many compensating beauties in his productions, which offer a fair claim to public patronage. His " Dragon King," in particular, is a cbarte and polished composition, and discloses numerous passages which exhibit striking imagery gracefully conveyed. The scene in which King Arthur discovers himself to the inhabitants of Sorbiodunum, is exceedingly animated, and the incantations of the Adelrunre are well in character. ** Imogenia," too, Is an engaging and well-finished conception, and more likely to excite the sympathy of the reader than any other character introduced among the dramatis persoms in the volume. Mr. Pennie's description of a Roman galley, in another tragedy, strikes as as hippy enough to deserve quotation. He pictures the vessel with
Her crimson banners to the winds displayed With beak of burnished brass and bank on bank. Of oars that rose and fell like giant wingt Of ulcer flashing in the midday sun.
This is just and poetical, and we could addo.ee many other passages superior to the above in power if our space permitted. On the whole, although faults and merits are pretty equally distributed throughout his performances, we think Mr. Pennie deserves much more of the general attention than be has hitherto received. Ha is an unpretending and iidustrious author, who ha* hitherto pursued his can -r under the auspices of no party, and enconragement might be the means of stimulating him to still greater exertions. Wc nut not pas* over his Notes without bestowing oar commendation upon the research theydisplay, bat where did Mr. Pennie learn that Aristomenes sacrificed three hundred victims to Jupiter of Ithome? That he thrice Offered (he Hecatompbonia we are aware* bat this is altogether a different matter. We hope Mr. Pennie, in a future note, will make reparation for the injustice he has done the patriotic Messenian.
Family Classical Library. No. XXIV. —Plutarch. Vol. II.
Plutarch is, perhaps, of all classical authors, the fittest to appear in an English translation, and ander a popular form. There is nothing in his thoughts and language which may not he easily transfused into another tongue; and his narrations are conveyed by so graceful and unartected a style, that the wise and venerable philosopher doe* not appear throughout his writings more freqacntly than the social and entertaining friend. It has been the fashion, in these censorious days, to deride his credulity and superficial koowledge of character, and his want of that terseness and condensation which distinguish the works of the sterner historians. The latter defect, however, if it is to be considered aa such, may be considered the chief cause of his widely extended popularity, and a means of ensuring the affections of the multitude for bis labours until the end of time. It is not every one, who possesses either the ability or the inclination often to grapple with the vast and shadowy abstractions of Tacitus and Thacydides, and at a time when the mind, wearied with previous exertion, is willing to be amused at the expense of no considerable effort; under the sunshine, for instance, of a summer evening, or by the cheerful blaze of the wintry hearth, (he Chrcronean sage is always received as a grateful and welcome visitant. His authority, too, is not to be lightly prised upon historical points; for it most be remembered, that his information has, in many cases, been drawn from commentaries written by the very characters whose exploits he commemorates, and from many an accorate compilation, famous io bis own day, but which time has long since condemned to the same dust and obscurity which envelope the hand that traced It. We are glad to see the Langhornes' translation of this pleasing Author forming part of " The Pami)y Classical library," as we are convinced its appearance will be of equal benefit to the public and the publisher. This second volume contains the Lives of Pericles, Fabias Maximus, Coriolanus, Timoleon, Panlus Emilius, Pelopidas, and Marcel las,—enough for the price, in all conscience. The wood-cuts, however, are utterly unworthy of the text they accompany. The conqueror of Corioli is a sulky schoolboy, and he of Corinth resembles a Jewish salesman. The very presence of such beads is enoagh to excite a prejudice against their supposed owners; and yet these ill-favonred caricatures are termed illustration*.
Thoughts Od Education, Union of Classes, and Co-operation. Suggested by the late Riots at Bristol.
Deeply as the late scenes of violence and outrage at Bristol and elsewhere are to be deplored, if they have the effect of calling the public attention to the best means of all»:vi iting the con
dition of the suffering poor, the evil, like most others, will not have occurred without producing a beneficial effect. As remedies of the extensive demoralization and helpless poverty under which so large a number of our fellow countrymen are labouring, the Author of this clever essay proposes, in the first place, the education of the lower classes, ander the authority and superintendence of Government; secondly, a greater degree of intimacy and a stronger disposition to coalesce^ among the several castes into which society is divided; and, In the last place, the extensive adoption of what is generally known by the name of the co-operative system of labour. As to the second of these measures, it may be sufficient to observe, that it can only be considered as the result of either of the others; for, until led by their own interests or pleasures, it is useless to exhort the rich and well informed to enter into a voluntary amalgamation with the destitute and unenlightened. The other expedients are anobjectionable. The education of the poor, to a partial extent, by various religious societies, has already been carried into effect with such happy results, (hat it Is much to be marvelled at that the plan recommended has not long ago been adopted by Government, as the best means of preserving order and ensuring comfort among the various members of the great national body. Co-operation is so perfectly new an appearance in the political horizon, that it is impossible at present to conjecture what may be its ultimate results; but so far as it has been hitherto tried, the voice of experience has spoken loudly and justly in its favour. The Author of the present pamphlet is evidently imbued with a strong feeling of Interest for the welfare of his country; and his remarks upon the present condition of society are dictated by good sense and justice of reasoning. He is a clear and consistent writer, and a person of no mean literary attainments. Both the importance of the subject which he discusses, and bis manner of treating it, will ensure him a general and respectful attention.
Cabinet Encyclopedia. Useful Arts. Porcelain and Glass Manufacture.
The interest and Importance, attached (o the manufacture of these beautiful substances, have very properly ensured the different processes by which they are worked and brought to perfection, an early place among the treatises upon the useful arts, published in Dr. Lardner's ** Encyclopedia." The general reader will find much more of entertainment in his investigation of the subject than he might at first be led to expect; for not only Is every mechanical operation minutely detailed, but the historical part of the work is extensive, and displays much research, commencing with the preparation of the bricks of Babylon, and the ingenious fable narrated by Pliny, or tbe accidental discovery of glass at the mouth of the Belas, and ending with the beautiful vases of Wedgewood, and tbe famous disks of Guinand and Frauenhofer. The porcelain works of China occupy a whole chapter, which forms, perhaps, the best compendium of the information respecting this celebrated manufacture extant. Nor should we pass over without praise the chemical investigation of the substances made use of in the production of glass and earthen vessels of all sorts and qualities '1 he chapter upon gems appears to contain much less than mi^ht have been aniicipated on this head ; but this is probably owing to the secrecy with which those, who are acquainted with the method of fabricating the imitations of these costly ornaments, endeavour to veil the knowledge they possess, and the deficiency is well made up by the quantity of matter comprised in the description of the colouring and painting of glass. Numerous wood cuts, neatly executed, embellish (lie volume, and arc very serviceable in illustration of the printed details. Upon the whole, we have seldom spent an hour of greater gratification than while engaged in the perusal of this twenty-sixth number of "The Cabinet Encyclopedia," a publication, which, we sincerely hope, is succeeding as it deserves.
An Address delivered to the Literary and Philosophical Society at Kingston-uponHull. By C. Frost, F.S.A.
To the inhabitants of Hull and its vicinity, this is uo doubt an acceptable publication, and even to ns, who are affected by no local associations in its perusal, the contents of its pages have proved highly satisfactory. We are gratified to find that a provincial town can boast of so much living talent, and so manifest a zeal for the interests of science. We have been also agreeably surprised at tbe nnmber of eminent characters to which the town of Hull has given birth. The names of Andrew Marvel, Mason, Milner, and Wilbcrforce, are sufficient in themselves to confer celebrity upon any spot, but to these Mr. Frost has added a host of others of no mean note, whose lives he 1ms neatly sketched, and so far as we have the means of ascertaining, with great accuracy of date and circumstance. We hope the spirit and ardour in philosophical research, displayed by the Society of which Mr. Frost is the President, may be efficacious in inducing the formation of many others throughout those country towns, where equal facility for their institution and support is afforded.
An Introductory Lecture delivered at K ing's College, London.
We fully agree with Professor Ventouillac in the sentiments which have dictated bis Introductory Lecture. The literature of France has hitherto received but very imperfect justice at our hands. To wade through the exercises of Chambaitd, to translate Ttlemachus and Voltaire's History of Charles of Sweden, or at the utmost a tragedy of Racine, in this is generally comprised all that is taught in our schools respecting a language which contains as m my treasures of thought and elegance of sentiment as any tongue extant. Tbe disadvantages of this system arc more particularly felt by the female part of the community, who, after spending many years in the laborious drudgery mentioned, end by reading one or two French authors imperfectly, and speaking a dialect much resembling that used by tbe Prioress in Chaucer. The grand error, we imagine, consists in making philology an insulated study , and never considering it as a mere aid to the understanding and appreciation of intellectual efforts, which must be effectually concealed without its assistance; but whether this be the cause or not, (he existence "f the Met complained of is uudeniahtt. How few, tor e.tamplc, arc there, e\cn among those
who am considered respectable French scholars, to whom the names of the acute Montaigne and the profound Montesquieu are known through tbe medium of their works. Again, how greatly is it to be regretted that the invaluable " Memoir* of Joinville," and " The Chronicles of Froistart," to the latter of whom we are so much indebted for tbe elucidation of various parts of our own history, should be almost universally neglected. Content with a very few flowers, taken from the department of the belles lcttres, we leave, what it may be allowed us to term the best part of French literature unregarded, and even the absurd novels of Florian are patronised to tbe exclusion of the most philosophical of his fellowcountrymen. A better taste, it is to be apprehended, is now dawning upon us, and it is a proof of good sense on the part of those who superintend the affairs of King's College, that they have established a French Professorship, on an equal footing witff those for the Greek and Latin languages. M. Ventouillac appears, both In taste anrl acquirements, if we may judge from the indications of these qualities displayed in his firat lecture, eminently suited to fulfil the duties of his station. There is only one point in his discourse npon which we must differ from him. We allude to his estimate of the comparative merits, or rather demerits, of Voltaire aud Rousseau. M. Ventouillac, while he bestows an abundant share of censure upon the former writer, appears to regard the latter with a degree of pity and forbearance, to which, in our opinion, he is in no wise entitled.
Producing Man's Companion. Rights of Morality. State of Society in England.
Much of what is unquestionably true, and much of what is ingeniously paradoxical, are here presented within the compass of some hundred and fifty pages. Two of the titles of the book might certainly be omitted. We are at a loss to know why tbe producer should be more interested in the discussions introduced, than those erroneously considered as tbe non producing members of society; and the exact meaning of the Rights of Morality, we have yet to learn. The writer is beyond controversy a man of ability, and we have no doubt hat beeu influenced in the publication ofhis sentiments by the best motives; but his great fault consists in his rapid and sweeping conclusions, and the brief compass in which he dispatches propositions, requiring ten times the space he has allowed them to investigate and determine. For instance, his reflections arc directed within the compass of a few pages to moral right, (which perhaps is what is intended to be signified in the title of the book,) arbitrary right, money, value of commodities, profit, entail, supply of food, &c; and upon each of these he has contented himself with laying down a few axioms, without attempting to enter into any tbing like argument or proof. It is a principal feature of the present state of our affairs, that during a time of unexampled political interest, every one thinks himself qualified to enact the part of pilot to the State, and the press consequently teems with tbe productions of theoretical politicians, whose works, in too many instances, resemble those crude and ill-shaped abortions, which the ancient natunlists snpposed to he produced on the margin of the needing Nile. Ti> the great balk of die public tkn i» prodBctivc of but little inconvenience, bat t# ■*, -who are in the habit of reading their locubrationa, the very words " producers and nonprmlocers, metallic and paper currency, free and restricted trade," are aboal as pleasant as was the juice of I^ebanon to the cars of the Koyal Dane in Hamlet. We do not mean, however, lo apply these remarks to the author of the work before as. We have slated that he is a man of talent, and are not inclined to retract onr opinion. A great deal of useful train is mingled with doctrines occasionally extravagant; ami an animated and impressive manner of conveying his sentiments adds to the general Interest of bis essay, which will be found to contain enough of originality to warrant us in recommending it to political economists in particular, and the reading ■abac in general.*
A Vision. In five Cantos.
It is but an invidious office to sit in judgment upon the productions of a poet but eighteen years of age. In this case the critic may deliver too severe an opinion upon abilities, which time might nuuire and display in a very different light from that in which they at first appeared ; while, on (be other hand, he is in danger of encouraging hopes which the fully developed powers of the author may never enable him to realise. The only safe coarse is to say as little as possible upon the occasion, and this method we shall accordingly adopt in noticing the poem before us. We must confers that we cannot exactly comprehend the plot of the production, and the metre abounds in deficiencies. The writer does not appear as yet to be master of even the mechanical part of versification, and to acquire correctness in this particalar must be his first object. When this is accomplished, and not till then, his poems will be in a condition to meet the award of public criticism.
Edinburgh Cabinet Library. Polar Seas and Regions.
In addition to the original matter contained in the above work, this third edition comprises many particulars of a new and interesting character; and the diligence with which they have been prepared for publication affords strength to their claim t<> tint public patronage, which the proprietors of the Edinburgh " Cabinet Library" have already so liberally experienced. The former editions were well calculated for general circulation, containing, as our readers are probably aware, tbe result of almost every inquiry into tbe extent, characteristic features, and natural productions of tbe Polar regions, together with outline* of the various voyages made since the time of Pylheas, for the purpose of exploring the recesses of the great Northern Ocean. The pens Of Sir John Leslie and Professor Jameson were employed in the preparation of the meteorological and geological portions of the work, and Mr. Hugh Murray furnished the account of the voy

ages of discovery. As tbe product of the labours of these eminent writers has been for some time before the public, it is our intention, in the present notice, merely to consider the particulars, now for the first time submitted to general perusal. One of the most important of these additions is the/ac itmi/e of a curious Runic inscription found, in 1824, on the island of Kingiktorsoak, under the parallel of 73 degrees, with a translation by Dr. Haiti, Secretary of the Royal Antiquarian Society at Copenhagen. This inscription, which is, probably, of as ancient a date as the year 1135, and which shows to what an extent the early Scandinavian adventurers carried their zeal for discovery, will be considered of great consequence by antiquaries. There is also an ingenious vindication ol Mr. Hugh Murray's views with respect to tbe voyage of Corlereal, which the writer of the "Memoir of Sebastian Cabot" maintains, with little appearance of truth or reason, never to have been extended beyond the southern extremity of Labrador. Mr. Murray seems indisputably to have made out his case, in carrying that enterprising navigator as far as 00 degrees of north latitude, or the entrance of Hudson's Strait. It ft well known that the year 1931 proved the moat destructive upon record to (he British vessels engaged in the whale fishery. An account of the wintering; at Operniwick of the crew of the John of Greenock, totally wrecked in that year, and communicated by Mr. fleorgc Inglis, mate, will be found an impressive and well compiled narrative. To this is added a general summary of tbe results of the whale fishery In 1831, and an examination of the present commercial aspect of this extensive ground of speculation, which will be practically useful to many readers. Indeed, those who undertake its perusal for the sake of instruction, or individual)) of the more numerous class, who are merely induced to examine Its pages for the purpose of amusement, will equally have reason to be pleased with the spirited efforts made for their commendation by the publishers of this popular votnme.
Poetical Pieces. Second Edition.
We should be unwilling to incur the imputation of ill placed severity of judgment, or backwardness to welcome the first efforts of incipient powers, which might hereafter be displayed to greater advantage, under the guidance of a more matured intellect ; yet we must confess, that we cannot discover in the pages before ns any indication which would enable us to encourage the Authoress to proceed in the path of literature she has selected. Her poetry, though, perhaps, calculated for a circle of private friends, will assuredly be unable to bear the severe test of public criticism. To deliver any other opinion npon it, would only be to excite hopes which, we fear, would have but little chance of being gratified, and to Blimnlate exertions which might ensure both applause and success, If directed to a more attainable object.
